Story Details for Riddick 3 Leak Out
Posted 02.18.10 by Ryan
A recent report announced that a third Riddick movie will be released domestically by Universal, with both Vin Diesel and writer-director David Twohy returning to the franchise. Twohy previously revealed that the upcoming sequel will "feel more like Pitch Black than The Chronicles of Riddick," but few other plot details have been released. However, included at the end of a THR report of a Russian distribution sale of Riddick 3 at the European Film Market was a brief synopsis of the movie.
Though billed as a back-to-basics approach to the character popularized by Diesel, the script features the character — the most wanted man in the galaxy — left for dead on a barren alien planet, dealing with "trisons" (three-legged bisons) and "mud demons." He must then contend with
two squads of bounty hunters, one of which ride rockets called jetcycles.
Production on Riddick 3 could begin later this year.
